AllMusic Review by

Pimps, Players & Private Eyes gathers ten theme songs from early-'70s blaxploitation films, including Curtis Mayfield's "Pusherman," Willie Hutch's "Theme of Foxy Brown" and "I Choose You," Isaac Hayes' "Theme From Shaft," Bobby Womack's "Across 110th Street" and Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man." Although "Superfly" should have been on the album, these funky, soulful cuts effortlessly evoke their era and make for a highly entertaining listen.
